Melbourne: A prolific scorer against Australia, Indian middle-order batsman VVS Laxman hoped that the hosts would continue to have recurring nightmares of his presence at the crease during the forthcoming Test series starting here on December 26.
"I always dreamt of doing well in Australia. It has wonderful grounds. I wish to score those hundreds which help the team win...if it is a nightmare for Australia, I hope it continues," Laxman said ahead of the first Test on Friday.
Laxman has scored more runs against Australia than any other Indian except Sachin Tendulkar. On more than one occasion, he has played knocks which have turned a game on its head -- the 281 he made at Kolkata in 2001 and the 148 he cracked at Adelaide in 2004, won India matches from unseemly positions.
